Community waste management programs enhanced

Communities living adjacent to nature reserves face challenges when it comes to implementing waste management and recycling strategies. These challenges include poor municipal service delivery and a lack of commercially-viable and environmentally sustainable recycling initiatives to address environmental problems. As part of an integrated solution that dovetails conservation and poverty alleviation, we train, equip and register waste management cooperatives in communities near conservation areas. Eliot Chisango, leads ERP’s waste management program.
